With the marijuana industry poised for rapid expansion, NFPA Journal highlights safety practices, code gaps, inspection issues and lessons learned from the epicenter of the country’s pot business

Marijuana is legal in some form in more than two-dozen states, with Colorado, Washington, and Oregon permitting recreational use. In November, voters in five states, including California, will consider legalizing recreational use, and voters in three states will consider allowing medical use. Sales of legal marijuana and related products are already in the billions of dollars annually in the U.S., and estimates put revenues at $28 billion per year if marijuana were legalized nationwide.
